I think we will be seeing an iOS desktop very soon..
Hopefully in 5 years Apple is almost 100% vertically integraded and does not have to rely on any vendor to provide parts.
This could tie Apple up in legal knots for years and years. Sometimes it is cheaper and easier just to pay Broadcom.
I'd also expect real estate prices in East Texas (close to the courthouse) will rise significantly if Apple does this.
Here's the thing... So-called "Whites" make up 73% of the US population, but a much smaller fraction of the world's population. Is this the alleged "imbalance" that is being addressed by Apple? If so, they better start hiring a LOT more Asians and Indians, otherwise this should be chalked up to Apple buckling under to political correctness run amok.
Population (2015 est.) Share of total population Total 316,515,021 100% One race 307,067,138 97.0% White 232,943,055 73.6% Black or African American 39,908,095 12.6% American Indian and Alaska Native 2,569,170 0.8% Asian 16,235,305 5.1% Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander 546,255 0.2% Some other race 14,865,258 4.7% Two or more races 9,447,883 3.0% White and Black or African American 2,407,385 0.8% White and American Indian and Alaska Native 1,846,997 0.6% White and Asian 1,871,046 0.6% Black or African American and American Indian and Alaska Native 311,538 0.1%
And it should also be noted that less than 4% of the population falls into the label of "LGBT", yet this population is overrepresented both in the media and in these diversity pushes.

You know who else keeps a record of your calls? Your carrier. And you don't have any ability to opt-out of their tracking under any circumstances. And who knows how long they keep those records. I've looked at year-old detailed cell phone bills and seen all the numbers for incoming and outgoing calls.
Edited. Forgot one more thing. Carriers also track which cell towers your phone connects to.
This is also why its so silly that Tim Cook is so strongly pushing privacy. NO ONE CARES. NO ONE.
90-95% of iOS users either use Facebook or Google services. So even if Apple keeps things 'private' it does not matter.
Cook needs to stop talking about privacy and get into the advertising/data collection game. Not doing so, Cook is losing shareholders HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS. Apple needs to collect data and advertise. Because Apple users have spoken loud and clear they DONT CARE ABOUT PRIVACY.
Franken keeps going back to the Apple "well" again and again. Sooooooooo... just how much Apple stock does he own?
